"The Engraver's Cover"
We could be facing the first attempt of aureus pieces from the mint of seville in the name of Pedro I. This rare piece has the particularity of the mint mark S which is minted on top of another similar S, but twisted 90º right. The engraver didn´t bother in cover it up, but he left evidence of his intention in making it that way, or maybe he noticed his fail and corrected it.
